What can your organization do to support social and emotional learning?

The David P. Weikart Center for Youth Program Quality, a division of the Forum for Youth Investment, has been working with the Susan Crown Exchange and fellow youth organizations to launch Preparing Youth to Thrive: Promising Practices for Social and Emotional Learning, the first educational field guide of its kind.

The guide sheds new light on ways to help equip today's youth with the valuable social and emotional learning (SEL) skills they need to succeed.

The Social and Emotional Learning Challenge was designed to identify promising practices for building skills in six areas: emotion management, empathy, teamwork, initiative, responsibility, and problem solving. The Challenge was a partnership between expert practitioners (youth workers, social workers, teachers) delivering exemplary out-of-school time (OST) programs in eight unique communities, a team of researchers, and a national funder. The findings from these programs informed the field guide, which aims to not only help other program leaders replicate these strategies, but also provides teachers, school officials and parents with new insight into adolescent development. 

To learn more:

Join the launch webinar on Wed., Jan 27, at 3 p.m. Learn more about the social and emotional learning domains highlighted in the field guide - emotion management, empathy, teamwork, responsibility, initiative and problem solving - as well as how this guide can support you in being more intentional about social and emotional skill building in your program.
